Step 1

Anchor the wire to the component by wrapping the wire around one side twice.

Step 2

String several beads.

Step 3

String enough beads to fill the width of the component. Pull the wire to the other side of component.

Step 4

Place the wire over the top of the component, pulling it behind and up through the center of the component.

Step 5

Pull the wire up over the top of the component and behind again.

Step 6

Pull the wire behind and across the component. The wire should now be on the same side of the component as the anchor.

Step 7

Wrap the wire around the component twice.

Step 8

String several beads.

Step 9

String enough beads to fill the width of the component. Pull the wire to the other side of the component. Lay the row of beads next to the previous row.

Step 10

Wrap the wire around this side of the component.

Step 11

Pull the wire behind and across the component. The wire should now be on the same side of the component as the anchor.

Step 12

Wrap the wire around the component twice.

Step 13

Repeat steps 8-12 until the component is filled. To finish, anchor the end of the wire with a couple of wraps. Cut off excess wire with wire cutters.
